Another great dinner passed and a good night sleep in (this time we stayed at a hotel). We woke up the next morning and had a late brunch at Founding Farmers. Even with a reservation, we waited about 20 minutes. The place was packed. Normally, we would complain and leave but we didn't have too much to do that day so we patiently waited.
Once seated, we were given the menus to look over. Lucky for us, we were being served at "the magical time when they serve both the brunch and lunch menu" as the waitress described to us. I ordered a hot chocolate and the plate of Southern Pan Fried Chicken and Waffles ($16) with macaroni and cheese and a choice of one side. I chose grilled broccolini to add some healthy value to my plate.
Mr. M&P had the original Founding Farmers Cheeseburger ($10) with Louie Dressing which also came with a side of fries. Upon first look, the meat to bun ratio was off. But that bun was super fluffy. So once you grabbed onto it, it collapsed into a more reasonable size. Overall, he enjoyed it and the fries were okay.
Also, the crowd was a mix of adults, families, and students from the nearby University. It was loud in there. Really loud. That can be a turn off for a lot of people. But it was fine by us since we were people watching.
